    be verb

    "Sometimes I will eat things I know are unhealthy."

    1) Here, I think "I know" is absolute, isn't it?

    2)In "...... are unhealthy" subject will be "things". I think "that" has been omitted before "....are unhealthy". Since "that" has been omitted, the form of "are" should be "being". But why "are" has been used instead of "being"?

    Re: be verb

    I am not a teacher.

    Because 'that' has been omitted before 'I know', not before 'are unhealthy'.
